Polmos Lancut


Polmos (an acronym for Polski Monopol Spirytusowy, Polish Spirit Monopoly) was a Polish state-owned monopoly, controlling the Polish market of spirits, fine spirits and other alcohols. Founded in late 1920's, until World War II it was one of the leading vodka producers in Poland. At the same time, its factories were the most modern such facilities in the region, which allowed the company to export its' products to many other countries of Central and Western Europe.

After the World War II the company became a true monopoly as all other distilleries were nationalized by the communist authorities of Poland and attached to the Polmos. In 1990 the monopoly was divided onto several independent companies, each being an owner of one of the factories and one of the best-selling brands of Polish spirits. Currently the companies are being privatized and only 5 remain state-owned.

Among the best-known descendants of Polmos are:
